LONDON, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Jamaican-born singer, model and actress Grace Jones recently released "Hurricane," her first new album in 20 years, the BBC reported Thursday.

"I didn't decide to do an album -- I'd decided never to do an album again. It was an accident," Jones told the British broadcaster. "I never do what anyone else is doing. I could walk away from music and become a farmer or do some crochet. The worst thing in life for me is to do something I'm not happy doing."

Referring to the publicity tour she is in the midst of to promote the CD, she said, "It's only because I love the record that I have the motivation."

Jones said the concert tour she will start next year "will be focused on the music."

"So if a bomb were to drop, my voice can go on and entertain," she added. "There will be some pizazz, but not overwhelming. It will be rock 'n' roll -- with fashion, of course. I'm going to learn to play some extra instruments, a bit of accordion, cowbell and some percussion."
